That's the flight arriving on the 25th, it will perform the return flight from TLV on the 26th, though.
I'm not quite sure where FR24 gets its data from, but suffice to say it's not always correct.
SND is still foreseen on the LIN and TLV flight on the 25th.

I think that flightradar24 works with updates every xx hours, as otherwise the servers will get clogged with data-requests. YouTube also does it counting views only every xx hours. (cron jobs)

Also remember that, with the start of the summer season tomorrow, the timetables are likely to undergo some changes and that some aircraft are returning from maintenance, with possibly a few hiccups here and there. :)

My best guess would be to have a white nosecoin. As they had a lot of issues with the parking guidance on the other belgian icons.

Yes it was LIN - chosen for the almost-inaugural service because it is the home town own Maria Mascellani, whose design was realised on the Areosmurf. F/O on this flight was her boyfriend, a pilot for SN himself.

I don't think they went far from the original design on the left side at all. They put Smurfette in the drivers seat, and the attendant was replaced by a male Smurf, other than that, it is more or less the original design. They had to bring the height of the design down though, to transfer the flat 2D design onto a round 3D aeroplane. If they would not have done that, it would have looked odd from certain angles. And this way it allowed them to paint some sort of fuselage around the design, with a white(ish) nose, which will indeed aid in getting the aircraft automatically docked. They did learn from Rackham smashing into a boarding bridge. Other benefit is that in case of a radome replacement, it will visually not have the same effect as when Rackham flew around with a white nose for a couple of days.

Correct. Her brother is first officers at Brussels Airlines and was in the cockpit during the unveiling ceremony.

First, I was a bit scepticle, but the Aerosmurf is a job very well done. I presume it's an extra cost, but I wished each additional aircraft in SN's fleet (not flying for EW) would get a special livery to break the dullness of airline liveried and there were so many good entries which couldn't be selected.

Well, to be fair: the website of SN is mostly not correct on where their special liveries are going. The best tip is just use Flightradar24.
